Sir THOMAS WHITE: (Minister of Finance and Receiver General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. No.

2 and 3. Answered by reply to No. 1.

I may observe, in connection with this question, that the hon. gentleman seems to be inordinately curious as to my private affairs, but I have no objection to informing him that, when I was connected with the National Trust Company, my stock holding was ten shares, the amount necessary to qualify me as a director. My interest was not as a proprietor but as general manager.
